Class Materials

You can get everything that you need from your local art store or amazon for under $35.

  • Watercolor paint ($9)

    Paint tubes can be messy and difficult for beginners. Start with a paint palette like this. If your paint palette doesn't come with a lid or mixing tray, grab a Tupperware lid.

  • Watercolor paintbrush ($16)

    Round tip brushes like this are great for both wide brush strokes and fine lines. Sizes #2-10 are marvelous, nothing smaller or larger is necessary.

  • Watercolor paper ($10)

    Cold pressed, 140 lb, no larger than 11x14 in. This is an excellent brand for beginners

  • Additional materials (around the house)

    Tape (masking tape or painters tape is best), pencil, eraser, cup of water, paper towel, a clipboard or sturdy piece of cardboard (to tape paper onto), crayons, salt (table salt works great!), and a clean flat surface area for working.

Google Meet. You will receive a link to class when you first sign up. The class link is the same for each week.

Please do! Parents paint free :-) 

Where can I find our class recordings?

Each class recording is directly in our google calendar invite for that week. If you ever have trouble finding it, send me a note!

Need to schedule time with Ms. Lauren?

I love seeing parents before or after class. We can also schedule something outside class - just send me an email or text or give me an ‘ol fashioned phone call!
